About Us


Welcome to Theo’s!

Theo and Mary Theodosakis opened the doors in 1976 with the vision to provide authentic Greek dishes served in a relaxing and beautiful setting. Forty years later, that promise continues and the vision expands to include collaborating with local food producers throughout the Okanagan Similkameen, an increasing list of award winning Okanagan wineries, and cultivating greens and vegetables from our garden in Naramata and from our new rooftop garden above our restaurant. We are here to celebrate food, to celebrate families and to champion the potential of our collective lives. Thanks for joining us.

The philosophy of our food is simple. Everything that we serve, we make in our own kitchen. That includes our soups, our dips, phyllo pies, our thick yoghurt for our yoghurt and honey dessert, and our dairy and non-dairy ice creams (thanks Linda!). When we can, we harvest vegetables and greens like amaranth and purslane from our own gardens and work with a widening circle of local food producers.

We like to offer authentic Greek dishes, especially from Crete, that feature the flavour and qualities of the ingredients themselves. We feature authentic appetizers like Yigantes, Dako, Vegetarian Dolmathes, Fava and many others that not only nurture our bodies, but nurture our connection to our ancestors and the foods that sustained them. We feature main courses like Rabbit Stifatho, Lamb Shoulder Oregano, Salmon in phyllo and Moussaka that are layered with flavours and demonstrate the wide range of Greek village cooking. It’s true, we bring in Oregano branches from Greece and Barley rusks from our favourite bakery in Crete.

We admit we sometimes get a little crazy about our food. We like it that way.

Our Food


  • Fava

    A very traditional creamy, split pea puree from the village of Crete. Made with split peas, onion, olive oil and lemon.

  • Orekteka
    A nibbler’s paradise.  Houmous, Taramasalata, Dolmathes, seafood salata, feta cheese and Kalamata Olives.
  • Dako
    A recipe hundreds of years old and still a favourite in Cretan Villages.  We import authentic Krithari Rusks from our friend Pavlos Plentas bakery in Chania, Crete.  We quickly sprinkle with water and red wine to order, then grind in a little fresh garlic clove, grate in a fresh tomato, and top with Macedonian Feta and extra virgin olive oil.  Served with an oregano branch from Greece for you to crush, rub and unleash flavours over your dish. An interactive experience with perhaps the worlds original Bruschetta appetizer.
